Can any student request to print items/passages from the test?
No. Only students with a set accommodation in TIDE can use the print on demand feature during a test. All accommodations require an IEP/504 plan for the student. Print on demand is not an accommodation that is accessible to the general student population and should not be used as a way to take a test on paper. For more information please see the Usability, Accessibility, and Accommodations Guidelines.
Do students need to download the Secure Browser to take the Practice or Training tests?
No. Students can use the secure browser; however, students can also use recent versions of the Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Chrome or Safari browsers to take the practice or training tests, or they can use the native browsers built into iPads and Android tablets.
